i just wonder. If let say later on DFI find out that the problem comes from the board, and they built a new rev DFI that fix this issue, how about us the user who bought earlier Expert? Will DFI replace it with a new one or we the loyal DFI user needs to buy a new expert that fix the issue?

hehe just wondering :D

About as much chance as if the processor is found to be the culprit and have AMD replace it cause it reads wrong on your board :)

 

Sometimes things get lost in the translation so I'll follow their guidelines and let you know what's going on.

 

I don't know if it's worthwhile recording the temps again with my various chips as I don't believe them anyway. May pop in the Opty, the 4000+, and the 57 and see what MBM5 says, but it doesn't appear they are looking for emperical data of any sort, just the processor. So be it. Think the 4000+ will be making the trip. I think it's got relatives over there anyway :)

 

Some of the guys were saying the NVidia monitor is giving them accurate and stable temps in their "Infinity" boards, and that SG, MBM5, and Speedfan are still going nuts with readings, even with the latest BIOS. So maybe something else to try. But just use the NV "monitor" function of course.

 

As for the CPU "swap", I'm thinking that contacting Frank is what they mean by the "contact us" in their e-mail. If nothing else I'm sure Donna will help to sort it out. :D

some would have to agree that IF the mobo is the culprit that the right thing to do would be to recall the broken ones... that is DFI's call, as it would become an ethics issue.

well certainly a good floging for someone is in order. :)

 

If it's a defective component that is replaceable I'm sure they will offer a service.

Still leaning towards something in the BIOS, but I empathize with your fellings.

I'm going to try my 4400+ x2 in my gigabyte mother board and see what temps thet reads. I'm idling atm on 17c and when i prime95 AND running 3dmark05 at the same time my temps dont reach 40c. thats with 1.55volts @2.5Ghz.

 

That doesn't seem right to me.

Hi guys,

I'm maybe in the wrong topic, but I'm experiencing exactly the same issue but with a brand new Lanparty SLI DR.

I had to plug my CPU fan directly on my PSU otherwise he was never working. It's temp stay almost all the time under 25°C (full charge @ 29 -30 )

... Bye bye Silence :(

No, you're in the right topic. The title may reference the Expert board, but the problem is not limited to that model. I have an Ultra-D with the problems as well. If you have time, go back through this post and look for the email address that was listed for DFI. Since you are one of the few non-Opty users, you might be able to offer some information.

on idle my cpu temp is 28-30 degrees C, PWMIC 39 degrees C, and the chipset is 43 degrees celcius. i havnt overclocked yet so everything is stock. these sem right to me but this is my first build so do they look ok to you guys?

Just gave it a try and unfortunately it still reports the same temperatures as MBM5 i.e. 22 degrees
